If a public construction project is delayed or disrupted, prompt action is required.

While contracts can differ, the State of Ohio contract generally provides that a claim must be the subject of written notice within ten (10) days of the event that causes the claim. Thirty (30) days thereafter, the damages associated with the claim must also be documented in a second notice.

Failure to do these can result in the waiver of an otherwise valid claim for additional time and/or money.
